Problems with 52in HDTV

TV comes on, but everything is in 3D. Does this mean the picture tube is bad? What is the problem and how expensive would it be to get it fixed?

This a projection television! and it does have conversion IC's and settings!
but if you never went into the settings and never changed anything then resistors on the conversion IC's chips are bad and you may also need new conversion IC's
this will show you that you do have conversion

NO this is a condition known as convergence problems. first question in menu then go to setup and see if the option of convergence is in the menu. is the picture bowed in from the top and bottom. do you have the option of autoconvergence. does it work and how far does it get. there is a common problem with these sets. and may be a simple fix if you can solder a part. so let me know and we will continue to troubleshoot.

    The itc222 chasis or t d52w59 Does not contain the standard convergence chips. Since you do not have the convergence option under the. i would suspect that you might have what is known as the fl231 fuse problem. i have wrote a article on this problem. it is quite common and i see it all the time at the shop. look under my profile in tips and tricks for the fl231 article. if you can solder this can be a simple inexpensive repair

  • Willie Howell Oct 29, 2008

    if you do not have this convergence option then i would almost gaurante you have a blown fl231 fuse. this little special fuse can be bought at union electronics or anywhere that sells parts for rca. Consult the fl231 poblem under tips and trick section of my profile for detailed instruction for repair. If you are not electronic tech. try to find one someone that can solder,,, we charge at our shop 150 for something that is as easy as 5 dollars and no more than an hour

There is red and blue lines around screen and images. (Almost looks like it should be 3d). Does this mean it needs a new lamp/bulb? It is only 6 years old. What is the cost for the part? Thank you


If model number is as listed (46f500) it does not use a lamp or bulb but has three picture tubes.

3d means the two convergence chips in the set have failed.

It depends on if you can solder etc, not a very expensive parts cost (under 30 dollars)

Can you solder?

My Panasonic television has shadows on every image displayed. I have heard it could be something as minor as a tube, and they are not expensive to have replaced.

Shadow effect on picture. Picture is fine but there is a red shadow tint to everything (basically everything is written twice, but not in the same spot)

I think my picture tube is going out on my Zenith System 3 Tv


Hi, Sorry it took someone so long to get back to you, but nobody likes to give bad news. This tv has a 1.7R tube with 530 resolution and an NTSC tuner which means it is analog and with the new change this month you would need a converter box anyway unless you have cable or satellite. Because of this particular tube and the labor to change it, it would indeed more expensive to replace it than buy a new one. Best of luck to you!
